About Peach Fest

PeachFest is an afternoon filled with chefs creating a series of rare tastes and culinary experiences. an annual festival that enriches our Downtown Atlanta community while giving back to local and national charities.

 

EAT & DRINK lots of peach...

PeachFest is an initiative to combine Responsible Agriculture, Culinary, and Hospitality alongside the traditional recipes and modern chef preparations of Georgia-grown peaches and heritage breed pigs. A Sunday afternoon filled with well-known chefs creating unique bites, samplings from wineries, distillers and brewers plus a satellite beverage competition “The Peach Punch Royale” (top barkeeps make peach infused bourbon punch) and access to cellared wines in the Silent Auction area. 

More than 65 food artisans, pastry chefs, barkeeps, and sponsors collaborating on memorable culinary experiences filled with inventive takes on classic peach dishes! Watch and learn while chefs roast, smoke and grill locally raised heritage meats paired with Georgia's iconic stone fruit and more. All-inclusive tickets start at $60. Children under 5 are free and we hope they like ice cream socials, Hawaiian shaved ice, and 'The Original Peach Puppy'.

Named after Georgia’s most iconic crop, we aim to celebrate the state’s agricultural diversity – from the namesake peach to blueberries and peanuts, heritage breed pigs and Vidalia onions. All proceeds from the event will go to charity called Piggy Bank and to planting Peach Trees in Atlanta. We are planting the seeds today to make sure we have fruit trees and heritage breed pigs for the next generation.

Our goals include raising money for charity, celebrating Georgia’s Best Farmers and artisan spirits, discover a new Downtown experience, enjoy an honest and good culinary event, support education through consumption and awareness, and promote business through Agri-Tourism by eating local.

 
 
I am pleased to support and welcome the first-ever PeachFest to downtown Atlanta, I encourage both residents and visitors to attend this charitable event which will not only benefit local family farms, but provide educational resources to our community. Over the last seven years, our city’s downtown corridor has seen tremendous growth and investment and I look forward to having the festival in our city for years to come.
— Mayor Kasim Reed
